addressed to president obama field tested positive for ricin poison. the day after a letter was also sent to senator roger wicker also tested positive for the same substance. >>> we begin with new information about the deadly bombing at the boston marathon. as the president and first lady prepare to travel to boston on thursday. after much speculation this afternoon, the fbi has releasted a statement. they say, quote, contrary to widespread reporting, there have been no arrests made in connection with the boston marathon attack. we do know investigators have identified solid leads from video evidence, including images of a person or persons carrying and dropping bags at the bombing scene. now, these pictures from whdh show a bag near a trash can at the blast site. just one part of the key evidence that investigators are pursuing to try to find the perpetrators. right now, there are conflicting reports as to how close they are to identifying any individuals. we expect more at an fbi briefing within the next hour. right now i want to go straight to nbc news justice correspondent, pete willi

including a frustrated president obama and show that to you. as a public service, in our opinion, we feel the need to read all of the names of all the senators who voted no on the issue. an issue supported by 90% of americans. we have a three-hour show and take the time to show you all of those names and perhaps a symbolic disconnect between washington, d.c. and the rest of the country. >>> the investigation into the boston bombings. lots of confusion with some media outlets incorrectly reporting an arrest had been made. pete williams is the best inf te business on this stuff with us ahead on the investigation. with us on the set is mark halpern and former governor howard dean and mike barnicle still in boston and in washington, the huffington post, sam stein. first the latest in west texas. i have reports coming in, joe, say the place looks like a lair literally war zone. charles hadlock has the latest. >> as you reported, the briefing ended here. >> reporter: we will have another one at 10:00 a.m. eastern time. here is what we know so far. at least 160 people have been injured in the ex
in washington, d.c. as president obama said it is a pretty shameful day around here. nothing to be proud of. we'll tell you all about it and take your calls at 1-866-55-pre. we'll look forward to hearing from you on twitter at bpshow and come on, come on! be our friend on facebook at facebook.com/billpressshow. what a shameful day, the most shameful day we can remember, i can ever remember out of washington. when 46 senators decided that they would rather stand with the gun manufacturers and rather stand with the gun lobby and nra than 20 little angels gunned down at sandy look elementary school or their grieving parents who came down here and begged the senators to take action. they don't give a damn about the american people. don't give a damn about those beautiful little babies or their families or their brave teachers who stood by them. no doubt who's responsible. 90% of democrats voted yes. 90 pest of republicans voted no. meanwhile up in boston, thanks to video from lord & taylor police have hot leads in that investigation. but don't believe what you hear on cnn. no arrest has been made i
inspections for a risky workplace. while the number of inspectors has grown under the obama administration, osha just has 2400 inspectors for 8 million work sites. roughly one inspector per 60,000 worke workers. we talked last night about f fatalities from terrorism and gun deaths and we didn't talk about workplace. 3,000 americans died from terror attacks and during that same time. 335,000 americans died from the hands of a gun and over 60,000 workplace deaths. you would think on the day after one workplace fired up an entire town, the man that works for president obama, the day he went before a senate committee, after a factory explosion not inspected for almost 30 years, perez would be asked about it and you would be wrong. during the entire hearing no one saw it relevant to raise a peep about west or osha. they did find time to ask about a favorite right wing bugaboo. total questions about osha, zero, total questions about the new black party panther voter intimidation case, one. >> and i will talk about one who has covered workplace safety regulation more than any other journalist i k
that president obama or vice president biden or senior members of the cabinet make the decision to travel to britain and to honor the incredible legacy of baroness margaret thatcher. it was truly a providential blessing that margaret thatcher served alongside president ronald reagan and pope john paul ii. together the three of them did something that previously had been unimaginable. so many had opined the cold war was unwinnable, that we had to accept detente. we had to accept a condition in which the united states would constantly be in military conflict with the soviet union and our children would constantly be in fear of potential catastrophic nuclear war. and yet, when reagan and thatcher and pope john paul all ascended to leadership, together they had the vision to do something that very few imagined was possible. to win the cold war without firing a shot. had that been suggested in the 1970's, that would have been diminished as crazy talk, and yet that's precisely what they did. i would suggest in modern times there are few, if any, more deserving of the nobel peace prize than thos
to president obama, vice president biden for their leadership and standing strong and continuing to fight for a safer america. i would like to say they're see forhank you to the senators legislation that would keep guns out of hand and save lives. they stood by us right from the beginning. they were with us. we will not be defeated. we are not defeated. we will not be defeated. we are here now. we will always be here. we have no other choice. we are not going away. every day more people are killed in this country because of gun violence. our determination grows stronger. we leave washington hoping that others, both here and across the country, will join us in making the sandy hook promise. i pledge that we have great hope that more senators will take literally. i would like to end i repeating the sandy hook thomas begins, our hearts are broken. our spirits is not. thank you. it is now my great pleasure to introduce the president of the united states of america, barack obama. >> good job. , in few months ago response to too many tragedies, including the shootings of a u.s. congressman, gab
. >> nbc pete williams. thank you again for all your reporting on this. >> you bet. >> president obama and the first lady are heading back to washington after leading the nation in this morning's prayer vigil at boston's cathedral of the holy cross. nbc's peter alexander is at the white house. good to have you join us. >> they took off and are on its way back here. the president, as you know, has become so familiar with days like this unfortunately. it was barely four months ago that the president had to console the community in newtown, but today was very different. his remarks were almost defiant at times as he tried to comfort the community that had gathered there, inspire them. he referred to the marathon as sort of a metaphor for the collective american spirit referring to boston as a metaphor for our country as a whole. he also vowed to hunt down those responsible saying, yes, we will find you, but there were several standing ovations throughout the course of his remarks including at one point when he said, you will run again. take a listen to some of the president. >> we may be
with the global terrorist threat. on taking office, president obama declined to undertake an official study of what happened. senator leahy introduced legislation to establish a truth commission, and congress failed to act on it. so in many respects, this task force, this report is the comprehensive examination of the treatment of suspected terrorists that official washington has been reluctant to conduct. task force members believe that having an understanding of what occurred during this period of serious threat and willingness to acknowledge any shortcomings strengthen the nation and equip us to better cope with any future crises. it knowing what happened, our reputation, as an exemplary practitioner of the rule of law, will clearly be damaged. the task force is made up of as jenny said, a broad cross-section of folks have been in government, who understand government, who understand military, who understand the role of intelligence. the bios are in your folder but i would like to take just a minute to introduce them at this time. dr. gerald thomson, the former, our professor emeritus at
. the report put out by the constitution project is critical of both bush and obama administration's. it includes former members of congress. this is 50 minutes. >> thank you for your leadership on the task force and i want to express my thanks to the constitution project, but also to all of my fellow task force members what they brought to the table in terms of experience, wisdom, public service really made a difference in the development of this project and important report. as jim mentioned, there's more than 24 findings and recommendations. we can't cover all of those this morning that we want to hit some of the highlights. we hope he will take the entire report, study it through and look at each of those recommendations. why is this report important? it's important because we as a nation have to get this right. i looked back in history to the time during world war ii that we in turn to some japanese-americans. at the time it seemed like the right and proper thing to do but in light of history, it was an error. as of today this report will hopefully put into focus some of the a
department has still not named any suspects in the bombing but this morning president obama called it an act of terrorism. >> obama: this was a heinous and cowardly act. given what we now know took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorist. any time bombs are used to bomb civilians it is an act of terror. what we don't yet know, however is who carried out this attack or why. >> michael: the president will visit boston on thursday and today investigators combed through the remains crawling on sidewalks, scraping up fragments, and looking for any signs of who did this and why they did it. those tiny remnants helped the fbi solve other bombings like the 1993 attack on the world trade center. just a small fragment of the van that carried the explosives was found in the rubble, and that helped investigators identify the bomber. boston authorities say the bombs were made from pressure cookers and they believe a nylon backpack was holding the device. patients came in with wounds from small pellets and sharp nail-like objects. they're saving all of those pieces as evidence. they hop

of global warming the unusual photograph of president obama and governor right before the election. in the united states there's a large contingent of climate change doubters. what do you say to that part of the tows persuade them that climate change is real? >> would be take a look at me. i'm the picture of obama and governor chris christie. [laughter] because according to the ground rules of u.s. presidential campaigns, such an embrace three days before election day was an absolute taboo. and talk to the people new jersey or new york that had their homes destroyed and their communities destroyed due to the extreme weather events. look up on the map side, the report of china in january or february. one example, just to give you a visual image is the melting of the arctic sea ice in my part of the world. the consequence -- [inaudible] so whether we call it climate change or not, that's a political concept, which i know has positive or negative connotations, but the ice melting is a reality. and the consequences of the ice melting in my part of the world is extreme weather in united
if they provide mental health records. the amendment codifies one of president obama's executive orders that requires the attorney general to issue guidance to federal agencies about which records they must submit to nics. it improves nics as well by clarifying the definition of -- quote, unquote -- "adjudicated mental incompetent" so that it includes only actual adjudications, not a single psychiatrist's diagnose -- diagnosis. the manchin-toomey amendment does not do that. mental health records would also be improved by requiring the federal courts to make available to nics information concerning such situations as defendants who plead guilty to a crime for the reason of insanity. this approach is consistent with what "the washington post" columnist cortland molloy writes this very day. he says -- quote -- "the national gun control legislation set for debate in congress would rely on a bureaucratic dragnet of background checks so extensive that anybody's hands could end up being the wrong ones, including mine." he thinks that gun control supporters are -- quote -- "bent on harassing hi
. that's already the case in about half the states. the state of missouri and the obama administration wanted a blanket rule allowing the blood tests without a warrant. thousands of people in southwestern pakistan were homeless today-- 24 hours after a powerful earthquake rocked neighboring iran. at least 700 homes in the mashkel area of baluchistan province were reduced to rubble. some 35 pakistanis were killed in the quake, and another 150 were injured. the pakistani army said it deployed several hundred soldiers to the quake zone to bring much-needed humanitarian relief. in the middle east, islamist militants fired at least two rockets from egypt's sinai peninsula into southern israel, adding to growing security concerns there. they targeted the resort town of eilat. but police officials said there were no casualties. meanwhile, palestinians in the west bank and gaza marked prisoner day, urging israel to release palestinian detainees. they waved flags and carried pictures of some of the 4,500 palestinians in custody. new zealand became the 13th country in the world today -- and the
